Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the trachea (ACCT) is an unusual low-grade tumor from the tracheal and bronchial wall salivary glands. ACCT occurs most commonly in the upper trachea, being found in the articular cartilage in the posterior part of the trachea. 

We report the case of a patient with the rare condition of tracheal ACC who presented in an emergency condition that was successfully treated with a combination of surgery and radiotherapy.
